Is your guitar already routed for a Floyd Rose?


Edit: If you buy a Floyd Rose, it will probably come with a locking nut. But before you buy, make sure the one you buy is the same size as the one you're replacing.

ahh okay, would it not be okay to keep my old nut, and just replace the trem system, a lot of guitars i see have holes all the way thru the neck for a floyd rose, mine dosent.



Well, the Floyd you buy will just come with a new nut, but you don't have to install it.

The size/style of the nut is determined by the width of the fretboard, not the bridge it uses. You'll be able to use your current nut on the new OFR if you get it. Replacing the nut may require extra routing to allocate a proper mounting surface or adding shims underneath it to give the correct height.

yeah i ahve seen some fo the different sizes, R3, R4, im unsure what size would be suitiable, i would rather install the nutt, but im not goign to go drilling any holes, so i may leave the old one on there for now, and maybe, when can afford it, get a tch to do it


If you need to know then take off the current locking nut. On the bottom of the locking nut it should have whatever R# you need to buy to replace it.
